Q2. What is the specific issue?
The issue involves the electric auxiliary water pump on the models equipped with 4-cylinder turbocharged engines (MINI) and 8- and 12-cylinder turbocharged engines (BMW).  The auxiliary pump is controlled electronically by an engine control unit. After switching off the engine, the electric auxiliary water pump conducts heat away from the turbocharger.

Under certain conditions, the pump’s electronic circuit board can malfunction.  The malfunction can occur as a result of certain design features in combination with high operating temperatures.

 

Q3. What can happen as a result of this issue?
If the pump’s electronic circuit board malfunctions, it can overheat. In an extreme case, overheating of the circuit board can lead to smoldering of the water pump.  If smoldering occurs, it cannot be excluded that this may also lead to an engine compartment or vehicle fire.

 

Q4. This sounds familiar.  Was there a similar recall before?
Yes, the BMW Group conducted similar recalls in 2011 and 2012.

 

Q5. Why are additional models being added?
The pump supplier produced additional pumps that did not meet specifications.

 

Q6. Why are other BMW Group vehicles not included in this Safety Recall?
Other vehicles have a different electric auxiliary water pump design.

 

Q7. How did BMW Group become aware of this issue?
BMW Group became aware of this issue through its quality control procedures.

 

Q8. Can I determine if this issue exists in my vehicle? 
If you notice a plastic burning smell, or burning and/or smoke from the front of the vehicle, your vehicle may be experiencing this issue.

 

Q9. What should I do if I notice this condition in my vehicle?
Should this condition occur, pull off the road to a safe location away from traffic, and switch off the engine.  If you notice a plastic burning smell, or burning and/or smoke from the front of the vehicle, do not open the hood.  All occupants should carefully exit the vehicle and move to a location away from traffic.  Do not continue to drive your vehicle.

Contact BMW Roadside Assistance at 1-800-332-4269 or MINI Roadside Assistance at 1-866-646-4772 immediately to have your vehicle brought to the nearest authorized dealer.

 

Q10. Can I continue to drive my vehicle?
Yes.  However, when you receive a letter asking you to have this recall performed by an authorized BMW center / MINI dealer, please do so as soon as possible.  If you are not the only driver of this vehicle, please advise all other drivers of this important information.

 

Q10a. I am nervous about continuing to drive my vehicle. Can I get a loaner vehicle? Is alternate transportation available?
If you request a loaner vehicle and replacement parts are not available, we have directed our authorized BMW centers / MINI dealers to assist customers with alternate transportation needs.

 

Q11. Should I park my car in the garage, because this condition can occur when the engine is off? The BMW Group recommends parking your vehicle outdoors until repairs have been performed.

 

Q12. How will my vehicle be repaired?
The electric auxiliary water pump will be replaced on your vehicle.

 

Q13. Is BMW Group aware of any accidents, injuries or fires involving these BMW Group vehicles associated with this Safety Recall?
There are no known accidents or injuries associated with this Safety Recall.  While the number of fires has not been confirmed, a limited number may be related to this issue.
Q14. How will I be informed of this Safety Recall?
You will receive a letter in June via First Class mail advising you of this recall.  Depending upon vehicle model and parts availability, this letter may request you to schedule an appointment with an authorized BMW center / MINI dealer to have this recall performed.  In cases where parts are not immediately available, you will receive a second letter when parts become available, advising you to schedule an appointment with an authorized BMW center / MINI dealer at that time to have this recall performed.  You can locate your nearest authorized BMW center at www.bmwusa.com/dealers or authorized MINI dealer at www.miniusa.com/dealer.

To ensure the BMW Group has your most recent contact and vehicle information, please register your vehicle at www.bmwusa.com/myBMW or https://ol.miniusa.com/.  Registration is free, and will give you access to factory initiated campaigns and other information specific to your vehicle.

 

Q15. How long will the repair take?
This repair will take approximately 1 hour; however, additional time may be required depending upon your dealer’s schedule.  The repair will be performed for free by your authorized BMW center / MINI dealer.

 

Q16. Do I have to wait for my letter to have my vehicle serviced?
Yes.  We are in the process of implementing the recall campaign to ensure that the necessary parts are at the BMW centers / MINI dealers prior to sending out the owner notification letters. For the latest updates to this recall, please visit www.bmwusa.com/recall or www.miniusa.com/recall.

 

Q17. I see the “TREAD Act Customer Reimbursement Plan” attached to my letter. Can you explain what that is about? Am I eligible for reimbursement?
If you have already had this repair performed at your own expense, you may be eligible for reimbursement of certain expenses that you incurred.

One thought on “Recall 18V-248: Electronic Auxiliary Water Pump – 2007-2012 BMW

  1. Herb Chambers BMW in Commonwealth avenue, Boston, MA 02134, replaced the Auxiliary water pump and hose clamp due to the recall. However, 1 week later after I picked up the car, I smelled antifreeze burning, and next thing later the radiator started leaking from the top. Prior to the replacement of the auxiliary water pump, I had no issue with radiator and there was no leak. Is it possible that the parts they replaced could’ve contributed for the radiator to leak due to air pressure differential or the auxiliary water pump isn’t compatible to the radiator? I really have the feeling that this recall parts is what led to the leak to my radiator. Please comment on it if you have experienced similar problem.
